... and it works well. Congratulations, everyone!
One thing: if you are using an i7 with the integrated GPU, you'll need to boot with "nomodeset" (and sacrifice xrandr). Otherwise, X won't start. This is a bug that has affected the kernel since about 3.6.5 and is present in multiple other distros (eg the latest Linux Mint 15 liveCD, and the Ubuntu nightly with kernel 3.9.0), so it's not Mageia's fault).
